Google maps below give driving directions from France or from Lausanne. The Science Department is located in the center of Geneva. We do not recommend coming by car because traffic and construction sites make driving quite tedious. Parking is also quite expensive and sometimes hard to find. The closest public parking areas are located at the “Ecole de Physique”, at Uni Mail (follow Quai Ernest Ansermet for about 1 km) and in the street “David Dufour” (see the Parking Map).

Take tramway 14 (direction: P+R Bernex). Get off the tramway at “Jonction” and change for either bus 2 (direction: Genève-Plage) or bus 19 (direction: Vernier-Village). Both these buses depart from the “Rue du Vélodrome” that you reach by crossing the “Rue des Deux-Ponts” in front of the tramway. These buses will bring you to “Sainte-Clotilde”, the closest bus stop from the Sciences departments.
